In Celebration of Dr. Seuss’ Birthday on March 2 and National Read Across America Day
Seussical is a complex mixture of 18 of Dr. Seuss’ most popular stories and characters. The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing the Who planet, including JoJo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge–not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping, and a trial, the faithful Gertrude McFuzz never loses hope in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
